We’ve rounded up the best spas in town for your next escape, so you can focus on feeling zen again—even if it’s only for a little while.
At this palatial, urban day spa in the heart of NoMad, you can indulge in all the coveted treatments of La Mer’s renowned skincare brand—like luxurious facials, acupuncture, cupping and Reiki. But what keeps this space a New York favorite is its focus on bodywork, like the signature ‘Restful Retreat’ that combines gentle body, scalp and foot massages with a warmed swaddle and aromatherapy.
Amid the sprawling, wooded grounds of this 500-acre resort on the Santa Ana Pueblo, this spa leans into holistic wellness for its guests with a full suite of massages and body scrubs. Make the most of your trip with a session in the spa’s Southern Ceremony routine, which combines citrus-focused body scrub and hydrating face treatment.
Framed with wood from a 250-year-old Japanese farmhouse, this intimate spa is a favorite of privacy seekers. The spa’s multipart Onsen Rituals are a must, and Intermix’s director of merchandise planning Julia Horn says she can’t get enough of the mineral-rich baths and multi-massage sessions that include yukata robes.
